Facebook Director of Product Management Rob Leathern made the announcement in a Twitter post last week.

There has been a controversy over whether or not face masks do anything prevent the spread of coronavirus in recent weeks, as people have rushed to buy them in an attempt to stop themselves from being infected.

The Guardian admitted on Sunday that face masks are an effective, if not foolproof, way of preventing the spread of the disease:

Wearing a face mask is certainly not an iron-clad guarantee that you won’t get sick – viruses can also transmit through the eyes and tiny viral particles, known as aerosols, can penetrate masks. However, masks are effective at capturing droplets, which is a main transmission route of coronavirus, and some studies have estimated a roughly fivefold protection versus no barrier alone (although others have found lower levels of effectiveness).

If you are likely to be in close contact with someone infected, a mask cuts the chance of the disease being passed on. If you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus, or have been diagnosed, wearing a mask can also protect others. So masks are crucial for health and social care workers looking after patients and are also recommended for family members who need to care for someone who is ill – ideally both the patient and carer should have a mask.

This hasn’t stopped tirades from so-called medical experts chiding concerned individuals for buying face masks in an attempt to prevent infection.

“There are severe strains on protective equipment around the world,” said Dr. Michael J. Ryan, who works as executive director for the health emergency program at the World Health Organization, during a briefing in February. “Our primary concern is to ensure that our front line health workers are protected and that they have the equipment they need to do their jobs.”

“Not having a mask does not necessarily put you at any increased risk of contracting this disease,” Dr. Ryan said.

“There is no role for these masks in the community,” said Robert Redfield, who works as the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to the House Foreign Affairs Committee. “These masks need to be prioritized for health care professionals that as part of their job are taking care of individuals.”

“Seriously people- STOP BUYING MASKS!” the U.S. Surgeon General wrote in a tweet. “They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can’t get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!”

The masks are only for the official health care experts, the government bureaucrats claim, while the ordinary person should not have access to the additional protection. Facebook is yet again serving the globalists by making it more difficult for individuals to access face masks, as they try to protect themselves as coronavirus continues to spread throughout the world with no sign of slowing.

China Administered Anal Swab COVID Tests to US Diplomats, Says They Were Done “In Error” After State Department Complaint

The State Department says it never agreed to have US diplomats undergo anal swab testing.

After subjecting US diplomats to anal swab COVID-19 tests, the Chinese government has said the tests were “in error” and that they would stop administering them.

A State Department spokesperson told VICE News that the department “never agreed to this kind of testing and protested directly to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when we learned that some staff were subject to it.”

The Chinese government responded by claiming that the anal swab tests were given “in error.” Although they are required for incoming travelers in certain parts of China, diplomats are supposed to be exempt.

China also said “we have instructed staff to decline this test if it is asked of them, as was done in the past.” If true, the diplomats either willingly took the anal swab test or simply forgot that they had the option to decline. But it is also possible that they were never told they could decline, or that the authorities forced them rather than “asked” them.

Some Chinese authorities maintain that anal swab testing is more effective than traditional testing procedures like throat and nose swabs, though there is disagreement on that matter:

Officials in Beijing are using anal swabs to test for COVID-19 in children as young as nine years old, arguing that this manner of testing is more effective than traditional measures.

Li Tongzeng, who works as deputy director in charge of infectious disease for Beijing You’an Hospital, is claiming that COVID-19 lasts longer in the anus. This is the public health reason being used to violate children in China.

Yang Zhanqiu, who works as deputy director for the pathogen biology department at Wuhan University, believes that anal swabs are not adequate for testing. He argues that nasal and throat swabs are more effective because the virus is typically contracted through the upper respiratory tract.
